Never been good at grammer

Okay, I know the word babble is spelled with two b's. I'm not sure if I thought I wanted to be unique when I came up with my blog name all that time ago or if I just didn't know how to spell (which is most likely the case). Don't worry though, I do realize NOW that it's spelled wrong.
  1. Mindless:
    Lacking intelligence or good sense; foolish.
    Having no intelligent purpose, meaning, or direction.
    Giving or showing little attention or care; heedless: mindless of the dangers.
  2. Babble:
    To utter a meaningless confusion of words or sounds.
    To talk foolishly or idly; chatter.
    To make a continuous low, murmuring sound, as flowing water.

Hmmm, when I look at these definitions I'm not so sure if I like the name that I chose. :) But I was looking back over my life the other day and I decided that this name is totally appropriate for me, sadly. I've always been a babbler, and it's really bad when I get nervous. When I was working at outdoor school a few years back Vonda Peirsol unknowingly (or maybe not) gave me the name of Babbling brook...appropriate, no? And...well, I seem to have forgotten the other examples at the moment, probably proving my point even more.

How exactly did I graduate from college?

Hi Tabitha...I hope you don't mind that I read your blog from time to time. You are pretty funny...I can see why you and Beks get along! And if I ever get a blog again I know mine will be a lot babbling too! So don't worry about that. Hey by the way I thought your title for this blog ("Never been good at grammer") is very ironic...because grammer is actually spelled grammar! hehe

HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! See, my point is proven once again.
Aren't I just hilarious? I sure wish I have done that on purpose, but, to quote George Washington, "I cannot tell a lie."
And please feel free to read my blog, that's what it's here for. :)
